Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum - UC Version, Certificate of Achievement
This certificate is designed for the student who intends to transfer to the University of California (UC) System and chooses to complete IGETC to satisfy lower division general education requirements. Completion and certification of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) permits students to transfer from San Joaquin Delta College to a campus of the University of California without the need to take additional courses after transfer to satisfy the lower division general education requirements.
The University of California has an American Institutions (AI) requirement that is separate from IGETC requirements. Courses indicated by *** will satisfy the AI requirement but may not also satisfy the area in which it is listed. An additional course must be completed to satisfy the general education requirement for that area. See ** below for additional instructions on completing the AI requirement.
Students must file an application for IGETC certification with evaluators in the Admissions and Records Office immediately upon completion of IGETC coursework.
Selection of courses from this list may be affected by one or more factors, including choice of major, university transfer requirements, or prerequisite or sequencing requirements. Failure to plan appropriately will adversely affect timely graduation and/or transfer. Students are encouraged to consult with a counselor to develop an Student Education Plan. Counseling appointments may be scheduled online by selecting "Counseling Center" under "Services and Support" on the Delta College home page www.deltacollege.edu, or by calling the Counseling Center at (209) 954-5151 ext. 6276 after 10 AM.
